4G coverage in Uptown is usually no more than one or two bars. In my building it's just one bar, which may be expected since indoor coverage is affected by so many factors. Service routinely switches to 3G, so coverage seems to always be right on the edge making surfing the Web slow and frustrating. This results in my battery draining quickly while in town. Seems like service was better a few months ago so I've been wondering if a tower is down or if a roaming agreement for this area has changed and affected the service. Bottom line is I have not been pleased with my service for a while. I have a Galaxy Note 2 and it's in good working order, but other Verizon customers in my building report the same bad service issues using a variety of different phones.

Very poor reception in the building. Regardless of floor. You have to be in the park before you have a decent signal. Dissapointed in Verizon, this is a major metropolitan. They should have stronger towers.

Husband and I have NO reception in our condo. Rarely, we can receive calls at home if we stand in one 2 ft sq area pressed up against the window. Even more rarely, we can place a call from that same spot. He also has NO reception in his Manhattan office. We have to use WiFi / Skype to call anyone. And lately Skype has been crashing on our Nokia Lumia 820 and 920. We're about to pay $340 to get out of our contracts. Epi Center reps said there would be more towers and improved reception come fall. It's worse than ever.

Reception sucks and calls are dropped. Call quality is terrible. Sprint wanted me to pay another 120$ for a booster! Don't buy Sprint!

Does not matter how many times I use "Mark to Spot" to report my issues to AT&T. Which has almost been a year now. AT&T has done NOTHING. Cell coverage by the Charlotte airport with AT&T is very poor and that is putting it mildly!

Depends on the flow of traffic on Atando Avenue. 3-6 bars depending on the PRL.

Dead Spot on the main floor of Charlotte Convention Center from Verizon Wireless. You would think they would put in some sort of signal booster for a venue such as this! Especially with the Democratic National Convention coming to town. Come on Verizon, you can do it!

As of yesterday, I have no signal in my house. My phone signal shows 'SOS'. I called yesterday and spoke to customer service that claimed that they will have my service issue remedied asap. I went to sleep and woke up expecting to have a signal. More than 12hrs has passed and I still am unable to make or receive calls, texts, email or access the internet. I'm very dissappointed as my contract is effective for another year and a half and I've never had this issue with AT&T wireless in the several years prior that I've had them.

I have extremely poor reception in this area. I drop calls and can not send text messages. I went to the store and they told me it was the phone. We switched phones and I'm still dropping calls.

Reception great, but no 3g. Have to go to Gastonia or Gaffney to get that. :(

Depending on where I place the device in my condo, I get somewhere between 20% and 60%. 60% is the best reception I've received from the device.

Have actually been dropped on a 911 call in my front yard. Not the best result to occur. Signal drops from 5 to 1 bar intermittently. Thank God I am out of the contract. I am debating a change in carriers, but after reviewing other results am not so sure any is better than others.

I've been a customer since 2000, and for the most part have been fairly satisfied with their service. Lately though reception doesn't seem as good and I'm dropping more calls. Last year I had an issue with my phone and was basically told that I was not a new customer and was in the middle of a contract so they were not pbligated to be be too nice to me... I just purchased an unlocked Blackberry and since my contract is now doe, am shopping around...

The combination of Verizon and Mororola has given me the best reception. I can make / receive calls from in the house and outside. Verizon also works well traveling to / from Pittsburgh even in W. Virginia.

Service doesn't work inside my house at all. Going outside sometimes helps but I often lose calls while standing perfectly still. My contract is up in a couple weeks and I cannot wait to switch after 5+ years!

I have one or two bars... rarely three. And sometimes even with 3 bars I drop calls. Sprint reception is the worst! Not to mention I can barely use it in my home.

I have had Verizon for about 2 years. I have always had good reception with them even while traveling back and forth to Cleveland, OH. I had Sprint once and they are WAY OVER PRICED.
